A Date with Dinosaurs Program

Dinosaurs are invading the Fort St. John North Peace Museum! Listen to a story about their adventures in the museum. Come find out about the dinosaurs of the Peace Region from ankylosaurs to plesiosaurs through short video clips and stories. Discover what palaeontologists can learn from dinosaur trackways. Compare your hand size to a dinosaur footprint. Create your own dinosaur crafts to take home. Learn how to make dinosaur shadow puppets.

This program is aimed at younger students – primarily kindergarten through grade four. It is easily adapted for pre-schoolers. It’s also a fun program for summer camps, clubs, and other organizations. 

Duration: 75 minutes

Cost: $95 plus GST per class (max. 30 students) (adults are free of charge)

A shorter program (45 minutes) is available for pre-school groups of less than 15 students with only two crafts for $50 plus GST. 


An adult must accompany every ten students in an elementary school class. We recommended more accompanying adults for grade three and under. Kindergarten and pre-school classes must have one adult for every 5-7 children to help with crafts. It is the responsibility of the teacher and accompanying adult volunteers to maintain discipline throughout the visit.

Please note: This program is also available to come to your classroom or organization for an additional $15 as long as your school or organization is within a 15 minute drive of the museum. We do the driving and save you the hassle of arranging a bus to the museum.
